The Slovenian Biochemical Society was established in 1983 (before as a section within Slovenian Chemical Society), and became a member of FEBS in 1992 (initially as a member of the Federation of Yugoslav Biochemical Societies).


The Society has 450 members (2018). Membership is limited to Slovenian biochemists and molecular biologists or foreigners working in Slovenia; citizens of other countries have to be proposed for membership by two Society members.
